Movie mania

"Love me if you dare" by Yann Samuell

As adults, best friends Julien and Sophie continue the odd game they started as children -- a fearless competition to outdo one another with daring and outrageous stunts. While they often act out to relieve one another's pain, their game might be a way to avoid the fact that they are truly meant for one another.

An amazing photography for a really good love story.
Guillame Canet and Marion Cotillard have a great chemistry both as an on/off screen couple.

"Babies" by Thomas Balmés

A look at one year in the life of four babies from around the world, from Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo.

If you are searching for a sweetness galore, this movie is perfect for you.
Don't be scared by the lack of any dialogue or subtitle: the language of love is universal.

"Center stage" by Nicholas Hytner

A group of 12 teenagers from various backgrounds enroll at the American Ballet Academy in New York to make it as ballet dancers and each one deals with the problems and stress of training and getting ahead in the world of dance.

There is nothing new under the sun of dance movies: this movie is full of the same old cliches as you may imagine.
By the way, some choreographies are really good (see the "The way you make me feel" and "Canned heat" ones)

"Solaris" by Steven Soderbergh

A psychologist still reeling from the death of his wife receives a cryptic message from a friend telling him to join him on the space station Solaris which is studying a spatial phenomena. Because of the phenomena, people from the Solaris' crew's memories begin appearing and interacting with them, including the psychologist's dead wife. The people appearing do not know they were created by the phenomena and think they are the "real" people interacting with the people they know on Solaris.

IMHO, a great idea but poorly executed.
Clooney didn't convinced me, but Natasha McElhon is stunning as usual.

"Suicide club" ( aka "Suicide circle") by Shion Sono

After 54 schoolgirls simultaneously jump in front of a train at Shinjuku Station in Tokyo, the city becomes plagued with "suicide clubs" -- groups of teens who get together and make plans to kill themselves. The police have little luck in deciphering the motivation of the youngsters, but they do keep finding a ribbon composed of bits of skin from all the previous suicides at each new death scene. 

As I maybe told you before, I'm fascinated by eastern culture, and their position towards suicide doesn't make an exception (maybe I could write a dedicated post someday).
It was really difficult to find this movie and I had to watch it in japanese (with english subs), which was a really strange experience itself.
It is a strange movie, I can't tell if good or bad but surely interesting.
